Don’t worry, we get it, it’s difficult figuring out what to do next. Have you considered marketing apprenticeships?

Someone looking quizzical

If you’re unsure about how to start your marketing career or develop & train within your existing role there may be dozens of possible solutions. However, a marketing apprenticeship may be ideal for you, no matter where you are in your career. You can find out more about our specific courses by clicking the button below.

So, what are your options?

Possible issues
University It’s expensive, takes three years, and by the end of the course, you may not feel as you did when you started.
Self-study / retrain Where do you start, what courses or books do you buy, and how do you know what is good or not?
Get a random job Sure, you’ll earn a little bit of cash, but will it actually lead anywhere?
Entry-level marketing role Marketing is very popular, and with little to no experience or qualifications, it’s really a rat race to get your first marketing role.
Do an apprenticeship There really aren’t any issues. You get a job in marketing, qualifications, and experience, and get paid at the same time.

Why an apprenticeship?

Apprenticeships combine the process of learning a new discipline with practical application in the workplace in a role you may struggle to get otherwise. Not only that, but you’ll be supported by your employer, work closely with a Coach who will mentor you, and meet other like-minded apprentices in the process. Put simply…
Employment + On-the-job learning + A dedicated Mentor = Becoming an awesome marketer!

Benefits include

You’ll develop knowledge & practical skills outside of a physical classroom using small group remote support sessions and online learning materials allowing you to learn at your own pace;

Unlike expensive University courses which can run into the tens of thousands of pounds, apprenticeships cost you absolutely nothing and can put you ahead of the curve with practical experience;

This means that you can plan the next steps in your career sooner than university;

Something that most University students don’t acquire until the third year of their degree, if at all;

Unlike a lot of providers, we insist that our employers pay the national minimum wage at minimum (varies) as opposed to the apprenticeship wage (£6.40). On average, this means you’ll earn between £15,000 – £22,000;

Such as a CIM or MRS certifications, putting you ahead of a majority of other marketing apprentices.
